Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) Calculator

Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) is calculated as:

1/3 Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) + 2/3 Diastolic Blood Pressure (DBP)


  • Sepsis > 65 1
  • Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) due to acute kidney injury (AKI) ≥ 82.7 mmHg 2
  • Minimum for adequate tissue perfusion ≥ 60 mmHg
